    Blessed with little of the showiness affectations of the X-Factor/American Idol generation, she can sell a song and inject it with age-appropriate enthusiasm that sustains her through the moments when Turn It Up glides by on its surface, while making the album--at its best--pretty damn infectious, too.
  2. It is a rarity: a proper album, from a proper pop star.
  3. Daffy girl pop with just the teensiest bit of attitude, enough retro influences and the odd acceptable ballad.
  4. Close but no rosette for the new British diva on the block.

    The generic patchwork of this debut LP suggests it's business as usual at the modern pop production line. [Oct 2009, p.102]
  6. Turn It Up is a wasted opportunity, weighed down by beige soul ballads and cheap-sounding R&B that could have been cranked out for any talent show contestant. [Oct 2009, p.113]
  7. Unfortunately Turn It Up, bar two brilliant singles, just doesn't stand up to repeat listens.
  8. 20
    At the risk of sounding trite, I couldn't wait to Turn It Off. [Oct 2009, p.97]

    An incredible combination of 'soul' and 'pop', the album is unique and has great songs, the melodies are good, the lyrics are excellent, and the vocals are great, great highlight for 'Broken Arrow' (Present in the relaunch) also highlights for 'Nothing Compares', 'My Love' and 'Gravity'.

    I enjoyed this album. It isn't an excellent piece of music, but it's a little underrated. It is enjoyable and better than other stuff (Rihanna, Lady Gaga etc.) (I wanted to say 6, not 10) Full Review »
